Great read. The last paragraph is interesting.
The only person who came to the aid of the embattled consulate staff, correctly identified the attack as a terrorist event, and successfully evacuated the Americans was Deputy Interior Minister Wanis Al-Sharif.
He was fired on September 26th.
He's also the guy that announced to the world on 9.12.12 that the attacks rose from a protest at the consulate

I heard earlier that they were UNARMED drones but am not positive.
Sorry I'm late to the party but it seems my fellow shipmate NAVYTIGER74 has diffuse this rumor.
I'll just say rumor is untrue. I personally know the front office of one of the number 2s at africom (one is civilian, the other military) and and he didnt not "relieve" general ham. And general ham's change of command is regularly schedule...and his deputy will also change office both in the spring/summertime of next year. so he's not being fire or any other conspiracy theories that's out there.
BTW AFRICOM is my next command...so I well aware of the happenings there...
